to republicans they say absolutely we're going antoine it. there's a lot more enthusiasm for mitt romney than there's been before. who am i to believe? >> nobody. i think the one thing that is true about ohio is that it's atypical in the sense that the president is doing badly amongst white men and white working-class men in particular around the country. although romney has been eroding the slight advantage here in ohio with white working class men, what helps the president here is that bailout of the auto industry because that is helping him with his key demographics. so if it really in the end is about ohio and the 18 votes here, then it may be that something has distorted the race here and helped the president. but nobody yet really even dares to call it. the one thing that both sides are saying very clearly is that early voting is very important. a quarter of the state has already voted and half may have vote bid polling day itself. traditionally early voting is the democrats, but this time rms have been working very hard on -- republicans have been working very hard on it, too. >> laura

a lot. i know a lot of republicans had hoped governor romney wouldn't have to be spending time in florida or virginia at this point. he could be focusing more on ohio and the pickup states. president obama, that map is a little bit misleading. where he's really spending all of his time in the last three days is in wisconsin, in iowa, and in ohio. >> can he win with wisconsin, iowa, virginia, and florida? >> clearly, he will win with all those. he could win without some of those things as long as he holds onto wisconsin and iowa he could lose a bunch of other states. that's his firewall. he's spending a bunch of time in the firewall states like nevada and wisconsin and iowa. that's the way that he holds on even if romney somehow runs the table in florida, virginia, and ohio. if he can hold those other states, he can still win. >> chuck, you go along with that? >> i do. >> we need virginia and florida? >> i have been trying -- the sunday romney schedule had been in the dark. they had set it up. here is the sunday schedule. we just got it. iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia. n
back. president obama and republican challenger mitt romney are making every minute count on the campaign trail but this morning there will be a brief pause as they keep their eyes on the last jobs reports before election day. we're live in new york with this morning's business beat. we'll talk about the jobs report in a bit. first let's take a look at the markets. nice rally. we needed it. >> yeah, good morning. that's right. the ball was off and running. a lot of economic data pept up from earlier in the week. the federal government shut down and famously wall street shut down for two days, first time we've seen that by weather since 1888 closing the stock exchange across the land. clearly some buying power coming into the market. retail sales better than expected. we did see home prices rising on wednesday so basically a lot of good economic data has got people into a buying mood. the biggest gains in six weeks yesterday. >> good. we needed that. let's get back to the big news of the day. it's going to be this last jobs report coming out and it could have a big impact o
do very well. >> mitt romney, the republican candidate... >> i ran into someone who was not so friendly to us who said, "did you come to see your guy destroyed?" i paced in the back of faneuil hall during the entire debate. >> good evening and welcome. >> narrator: romney directly confronted edward kennedy. >> senator kennedy, my impression has been that you have followed a campaign, as soon as the primary was over, of trying to divert the voters' attention from the issues at hand, and instead making personal attacks on me which are unfounded, unfair and sleazy. >> narrator: kennedy had unleashed negative tv ads. >> romney. it's not just what he did to his workers and business that's the problem. it's what he might do to us in the senate. >> kennedy was a master politician and what he did was he used a series of filmed ads to its maximal effect. >> mitt romney says he helped create 10,000 jobs. the former workers at scm in marion, indiana, say something else. >> i'd like to say to the people of massachusetts, if you think it can't happen to you, think again, because we thought
2016 and he can't do that if romney gets elected. there are people on the republican side that think that. >> he has to run for re-election fired a first and he knows who is going to be the president of the united states a week from now and that is barack obama ma. mitt romney -- the president who is going help out new jersey is president in october, november, december and january and chris christie needs him. i think that is the thing that people over look. they assume that either you work together or you play politics. in this case the politics is working in favor of cooperation. as you say, obama is going to be president for at least three months and christie in a year is going to be judged primarily by how he responds to this crisis. people are affected when they look like stuff like this. >> i have family in rock away. you can't see this level of suffers and say i'm a political leader and i have to solve this problem. you have that great discussion. my favorite line on government comes from government is the enemy until you need a friend. >> that was a great line. there was bipa
congressional republicans basically have stood by silently while mitt romney made this violent etch a sketch move not because they believe he will govern as a bipartisan moderate, but only to win and then he will adopt their agenda and if he doesn't, the idea that they will quietly go along, because as david said, they're going to want their president to succeed despite the right wing primary challenges they face, is just frankly bizarre reasoning. >> that's a good point. and thomas, you know, "usa today" has a story about grover norquist talking about the stalemate. americans for tax reform president grover norquist whose anti-tax oath has been signed by almost every republican member of congress is girding for a fight if obama is re-elected. no compromise norquist said adding his prediction for an obama second term there's a stalemate. if romney is elected it's putting the ryan budget into law. we don't need a president we need a zombie who has functioning digits or can sign his name on a dotted line. let's pick two scenarios here. if the president is re-elected how does he deal with a tea
, republican romney said he glossed over the messier details a charged the nation will face a recession if mr. obama is re-elected. >> he said he would lower the unemployment rate, down to 5.#% now. today we learn it's actually 7.9%. that is 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when obama took office. >> former labor department official notes at this pace it would take decade to get back to full employment. >> we need to have certain growth to keep up with the population. we're still talking nine or ten years of recovery. >> yet, the president has a narrow lead in ohio because the state's unemployment rate is only 7%. the president has gotten some credit for the auto bail-out. he charged today romney is trying to win this state by falsely charging in an ad the bail-out will lead chrysler to shift jobs from jeep plant here to china. >> everybody knows it's not true. the car companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. >> romney spokeswoman stood behind the ad charging, "his mismanagement of the process exposed taxpayers to $25 billion l
even republicans i've talked to in this state have said that mitt romney and ohio -- >> well, republicans feel like they're going after a wider swath of vote erts. they feel like they're going after not just their core, their base, but they're looking at disenchanted obama voters and they say they ever targeted them, they know where they are and they think that gives them the edge. >> and switch and that's what a lot of their advertising has been focused on. but in wisconsin, i don't know, there was just a new state poll by one of the papers in wisconsin that showed obama up by eight. now, that's probably on the high end, but there's not any real concern right now in the obama camp that they're in danger of losing wisconsin. they're sending the president there just to try and nail it down because they don't want to leave any stone unturned. but right now, you get a sense of growing confidence in the obama camp. they feel like they're going to be okay. >> well, and here is the reason why. of all these battleground states, the president needs to win just three in order to win a

the democratic campaign has painted the republican as romney ryan. i know you accused the congressman of not being able to work with others of the other party. as the independent who are you going to caucus with? >> i grew up as a liberal. i grew up in rhode island which means by default i'm a democrat. the rules of rhode island allow me to run as an independent. i don't agree with everything the democrats do. would i caucus more or less with the democrats? more. i'm a liberal. i don't agree with everything they do. republicans have good ideas, democrats have good ideas. sparse i'm concerned the only people i care about are voters. i don't have a corporate backer or take any campaign doe inflammation nations. there is a reason for that. i would caucus with the democrats. that doesn't mean i wouldn't shun the democrats if i felt they were out of line. i would go with the republicans where i saw the good ideas. >> would you vote for mr. bainer as speaker and if so the follow up question before you answer the first question is what issue have you identified where you could vote with the
, wisconsin, the president's republican challenger, mitt romney, focused on that number, insisting again, "we can do better." >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now, and today we learn it's actually 7.9%, and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> brown: what's more, romney warned, sticking with the president's economic policies will guarantee gridlock and worse. >> unless we change course, we may be looking at another recession. you can choose real change. you know that if the president is re-elected, he will still be unable to work with the people in congress. he has ignored them, attacked them, blamed them. the debt ceiling will come up again, and shutdown and default will be threatened, chilling the economy. >> brown: in turn, mr. obama accused his opponent of trying to scare voters over their economic futures. he pointed to a romney ad running in ohio that charges jeep is shipping jobs to china. >> you've got folks who work at the jeep plant who've been calling their em
with the romney campaign. in the back of the bus with the rust of the reporters trailing around the republican nominee as we close in on the election day. mr. romney has been spending a tremendous amount of time in the last couple of days talking about his desire to be a bipartisan president, reach across the aisle and deal with democrats to meet the challenge that nation faces, challenges he argues that mr. obama has not been able to meet and been too partisan and unwilling to meet with republicans on it. in the event in richmond, he singled out the house leader eric cantor and asked when is the last time you met with the president? cantor said it was a year ago. romney said i will not do that. i will meet often with the democrats and create the type of bipartisan agreements that move the country forward. he is making the argument that it's time for big change. borrowed rhetoric from the 2008 obama campaign that he says the president hasn't stuck to. he will wrap up the third event in virginia beach, virginia today. fully ten more battleground states that he plans to visit between now and tue

dakota where there's extremely low employment because of shale gas and agriculture, republicans are winning. it's an interesting dynamic in the election in that respect. the real challenge for any new administrati administration, whether it's president obama or governor romney, is we treat it as a national problem and we have huge varieties between states and education levels and gender. >> let's talk about the psyc psychology of it. are people looking at the numbers and measures how they feel? whatever the case, they're measures how they feel at their home right now. >> absolutely. it's a good media story to talk about the number that changes month to month. oh, my god the unemployment rate is 7.9%. do i have a job that pays enough? do i have several part-time jobs? will i find one if i lose one? that's what matters at an individual level. >> we know how that factor into who the public will vote for on tuesday. who makes me feel more comfortable about my future. >> what's odd about this is you think those areas hurting the most would be most likely to blame washington and presi

democrats which echoes what the republicans said when president obama took office and now before mitt romney wins, assuming he would, the democrats are saying they will not help. >>shepard: we used to watch the last three or four days of campaign where the candidates spend their money but they have so much money they can spend all they want and now we watch where they go. what do you make of the fact that mitt romney is going back to pennsylvania? >>carl: i was talking to a senior advisor about that and he likened to shooting pool and said if there is an open pocket you drop a bomb in it so they are going to pennsylvania looking at the polls and seeing they have narrowed and viewing an opportunity. it is worth noting that there was a plan for mitt romney to go to nevada and that has been knocked off the agenda. in part because it is a longer flight out there and we are going to colorado so it would not be thatcy but it is a sign that mitt romney sees the polls shifting to obama in nevada and not mitt romney. pennsylvania, he is going, and wisconsin we are there, where the polls have narrowed
of office and want to vote republican do not care how they feel about mitt romney they will get in the car and they are energized. he will not have a problem turning his voters out. it is looking like a base election and i don't think anyone has momentum and i don't anyone is swaying undecided. it is about turning out the voter. for president obama the storm shows people suffering and it will be a tough day to get your supporters to vote. >>shepard: i wondered about that. by day five of a hurricane, or day six everyone picks someone to be mad at. sometimes it is the local, sometimes it is mad at your president. >>guest: and all heart strings that were pulled by the governor of new jersey and the president coming together it towns to bitterness. watching people not getting food or gasoline and not able to get to work, it starts to upset people. five days in, by tuesday morning, the nation could feel differently about this than on thursday. >>shepard: we will see. the cycles go fast. see you on tuesday night. >>guest: i look forward to it. >>shepard: new york city mayor says the annual marat

but it will be a resounding victory for house republicans because we have a plan and we will work with mitt romney and the american people no doubt. >> let me ask you this. give me an example of a republican that if they win you're thinking, wow. republicans are going to gain seats. they're not just going to hold on to the majority and only lose a few seats. they'll gain seats. give me an example of one or two races that may be a little bit of a reach to people but will tell you something on election night. >> well, we have several as you know, chuck, in the northeast. one is brendan doherty running in rhode island. today is probably an even seat in terms of where brandon is versus his opponent but it is a vastly different viewpoint. it is a huge democrat seat. and i think that brendan doherty can win that. go to outside st. louis, east into illinois, and we have jason plumber. jason plummer is running for a seat that has not had a republican in years. >> jerry costello's seat. >> it sure is. two key states that will tell me early on where we are as a party. our messaging and how we're going to do
romney is also in ohio today. in aetna and westchester both counties that voted republican the last three elections. you look at the president's campaign schedule and it makes the buckeye state look like an airline hub for airforce one with ohio stops every day through the election. colorado, swing through florida, got to change planes in ohio. mitt romney not only focused on ohio but is trying to broaden the battleground map. what is he up to here with this decision to campaign in pennsylvania on sunday? he's also got new hampshire on his list twice not once. the smallest swing state. they think it is edging their direction but more importantly for their math the 270 they don't get there with florida, virginia, ohio. they get there with florida, virginia, ohio, and one small state in this case new hampshire. meanwhile vice president joe biden makes two stops in wisconsin. congressman paul ryan begins his day in colorado before flying back to the midwest for a rally in cedar falls, iowa. then he joins romney in westchester in ohio tonight. then there's former president bill clinton for th
romney is making a stop there. do republicans have a shot there, 11 point win for president or is this a head fake? >> never know if they're doing something out of strength or weakness. this is a real play. they're certainly spending money there. republicans are outextend spending democrats 10 to one in pennsylvania in the final week, hoping by saturating the airwaves they might make a push in what would have been otherwise fertile ground without having much airplay at this point. bill: if governor romney wins pennsylvania this is landslide, 20 electoral votes? >> it's a pretty big push. hard to imagine he would win pennsylvania and not do well in places like ohio and wisconsin and maybe iowa. bill: you know what democrats are arguing. this is phoney baloney. matters to nothing based on their polling. final stop here, new hampshire twice in the next four days, steve governor romney goes to new hampshire. only four electoral votes. if you look at map and what if scenarios, new hampshire could determine all this. obviously the president winner there by nine points over senator
